New In Rotation (3-7-17)
Jay Som – Everybody Works
Brilliant solo artist, Melina Duterte (aka Jay Som), is quickly back not long after her debut which came on Polyvinyl Records, Turn Into, back in 2016. The music, described as “hard-working dreampop” is catchy as hell.
Tennis – Yours Conditionally
Husband/wife duo, Tennis, are back with the follow-up to the widely successful, Ritual In Repeat. The pair are very versatile as Alaina Moore is on the keys, guitar, and vocals. Patrick Riley plays both guitar and bass depending on the track. The record is as dreamy as ever as Tennis appear to have fallen into their groove.
Froth – Outside (briefly)
Signed to Wichita Records and previously to Burger, Froth brings a very fun brand of lo-fi noise pop.
WHY? – Moh Lhean
The group’s move to Joyful Noise has only increased their capacity for cohesive and thoughtful music. What really sets WHY? apart is their signature mix of upbeat music and disheartening lyrics, and that’s no exception on this refined and mastered version of their impressive sound.
Temples – Volcano
The UK band is known for one thing: catchy psychedelic pop. It’s not the most thought-provoking music, but you’ll be hard-pressed to regret turning them on.
1. Molly Burch – Please Be Mine
Molly Burch appears to be Angel Olsen light. Her music is so incredibly similar as it continuously pulls at your heart strings as it is complemented with her hauntingly beautiful voice. While she’s no Angel, Burch is more than worth your time. If you enjoyed My Woman, Please Be Mine should jump to the top of your “to-listen-to” list.
2. Dude York – Sincerely
One of an already impressive lineup (Protomartyr, TacocaT, and Chastity Belt) that Hardly Art Records boasts, Dude York’s debut EP offers an almost angsty teenpop that sets itself apart from other artists currently on the label.
3. Dirty Projectors – Dirty Projectors
The solo project of David Longstreth is back for the most Dirty Projectors Dirty Projectors album yet. We know what he’s capable of and the uniqueness that surrounds his sound, and this time, he really just beat it into the ground but this time, without former girlfriend and bandmate, Amber Coffman.
4. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah – The Tourist
After an incredible self-titled debut that was shockingly released twelve years ago, CYHSY hasn’t exceeded expectations since then, but if you’re into that record and want to attempt to relive the glory days, there are some tracks here that can make that a possibility.
5. The Orwells – Prisoner
The Orwells are what they are. It’s basic garage rock heavy on the rock in a day and age when actual rock music seems to be evolving into something we didn’t imagine it would twenty years ago. They’re sloppy and they clearly don’t care what people think of them, but they make some fun music even if the critics don’t always fall in love with it.
